Chats With Wings-December 2017

 

Chats With Wings

December is almost over. The year is almost over. I don’t understand that at all. It’s pretty crazy that tonight, I will be staying up to shout “Happy 2018!” But, that’s later. Right now, I’m going to wrap up December, before I later today, wrap up the year.

Let’s recap!

 

Books With Wings

This month, I have so far read…..

 

14 books!

However, I plan on reading a few more today, so I will most likely read 16 books.

 

Favorite: The Girl Who Drank the Moon

This was the Newberry winner for 2017, and I finally got around to reading it! It was really good. There were a lot of pieces of the plot that came together at the end. It was really well written, so you need to read this book. Plus, let’s just scream about the amazing cover.

 

Least Favorite: The Last Panther

What I had expected to be a book about a girl in a tribe, rescuing animals turned out to be a weird, sci-fi, dystopian book. The title is misleading, by the way. There’s more than one panther left.

 

More Notable Reads: The Glory Field and Divergent

Apparently, a lot of people say that Divergent is too much like The Hunger Games. I didn’t find it that way, so that’s probably why I like it.

The Glory Field is really inspiring and it’s written in a really cool way. There are different sections about a different part of the same family through time.

 

Writing With Wings

Excuse me? What’s….writing?

Yep, I did not do a lot of writing this month. A couple of days ago, I read the draft of my NaNo novel. It wasn’t too terrible. I’m pleased with it, except for the chapters I need to completely rewrite. 😉

 

Songs With Wings

This is the month that I discovered Spotify. I love that app. I got to create my own play lists, which is really cool. I listened to more Christmas music (From my playlist and the radio), than one person should really listen to.

Favorite Christmas Songs:

  • I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas
  • Silent Night
  • It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas
  • Have A Holly Jolly Christmas
  • Carol of the Bells

 

Also, I heard the Hamilton soundtrack, so I might possibly come late to the Hamilton party. 🙂

I also redesigned my blog so that it’s more simplistic. I’ll also be giving this blog a new tagline later today. I think that it’s a pretty cool one!

My most popular post was My Writing Goals-2018. I enjoyed making that post, so I’m glad you all liked it.

My personal favorite was It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas, where I shared some Christmas photography.
